RESIDENTIAL PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

FNMA 1004   –  FNMA 2055 Drive by  –  Multi-family 1025 – Desk Review – High Value or Complex Properties

The mortgage transaction of today is far beyond what it use to be, as are the lending programs and regulations. While the FNMA forms for traditional appraisals have not changed, the process analysis, the level of expert detail and the supporting commentary has become increasingly focal in an effort to strengthen product depth and to restore public trust. Our traditional appraisal products are scrutinized from the moment we receive your order. Our mission is to ensure the right appraiser is performing the assignment and that he or she is competent and familiar with the subject market, while understanding lender guidelines in order to produce reliable credible results.

Let us know if these products and services are right for your organization!

 

REO Asset Management  –  Reverse REO  –  CWCOT (Government Claims Without Conveyance of Title  – Cost-to-Cure Analysis

While foreclosures and distressed property sales are declining nationally, there are still many states and many “micro markets” where investors and servicers still need to get it right when it comes to property values. We work with many of the nation’s top servicers, as well as several government agencies, to provide an array of products that bring “valuation science’ to determining the right property value in its current and repaired state. Many interested parties in today’s default arena are significantly more interested in Cost to Cure, As Is and As Repaired then ever before.

 

Drive By 2055  –  Desk Review  –  Valuation Genie free upgrade conversion from Alternative to 1004

With regulators banning the use of AVMs for lending and new regulations requiring copies of all valuations for consumers – Home Equity lenders need new valuation products that cost less, arrive faster and still meet the new requirements and industry guidelines. That is why we offer a whole range of products that achieve the right solutions.

Some Home Equity lenders wait days to find out a certain product is not available, or they pay twice when one valuation product has to be upgraded to another. Our clients avoid these frustrations with the “Valuation Genie,” which allows us to tell our clients ahead of time when there are data issues or property type restrictions. This process also means we can allow clients to upgrade to the next product without paying twice.

 

Could we design a report that met all the USPAP definitions as an appraisal report, yet remained user-friendly for consumers?  Absolutely.

Introducing Home Express Residential Opinion (HERO) the first appraisal product that leverages proprietary technology from the recognized leader in next-generation BPOs. Unlike other solutions that complicate the process, the HERO is designed from the ground up to lead the appraiser to successfully complete a report from the moment they log in. With integrated public record data, hundreds of field-level validations, and real-time best practices rules, the HERO facilitates the production of credible appraisal reports from the moment appraisers log into the system. The HERO works by first sending an agent or property inspection to the property to perform a comprehensive 35+ point inspection that includes photos, condition, and key valuation drivers. Upon completion of the inspection, the data is provided to the appraiser who reviews inspection prior to starting the desktop valuation. The final result is an exceptionally easy to read appraisal report that meets all the inter-agency and USPAP guidelines as a full appraisal. Available in the following select markets: Alaska, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Wisconsin
Meet the new breed of Broker Price Opinions. BPOPlus leverages our proprietary platform and delivers an industry-leading valuation solution. BPOPlus digs deeper into the property details and conditions driving today’s real estate valuations. We like to think we designed the perfect BPO, but when you’re as passionate as we are about innovation, BPOPlus is just the beginning.
For years mortgage and investment professionals have gambled on single-agent opinions to determine market prices. BPOCompare is a game changer. By leveraging three independent expert price opinions to achieve valuation consensus, BPOCompare is the industry’s most reliable BPO. Fueled with real-time data integration and advanced auditing features, every element of BPOCompare sets new standards that can’t be matched by traditional Broker Price Opinions. Welcome to our evolution and say goodbye to your traditional BPO.
With today’s strict regulatory environment, it’s essential that lenders consider property condition as part of their overall valuation. While traditional Automated Valuation Models (AVMs) have become a routine tool used in lending, they cannot take into account overall property and neighborhood conditions. AVMPlus bridges the gap by using local real estate a agent to provide a comprehensive on-site property report with neighborhood characteristics along with an independent assessment of the AVM.

COMMERCIAL PRODUCTS & SERVICES

Valued Veterans have appraised a variety of multi-family properties. Whether you are need of an appraisal for lending purposes, negotiating points, or simply need to understand the market value of your property, we can help.

Types of Value

The most common type of value ordered in a multi-family building appraisal is Market Value. This is because market value assumes a typical marketing time and both the seller and buyer are presumed to be aware of the relevant facts. In a situation where the selling party is under pressure to sell quickly (faster than a typical market-scenario) Disposition Value or Liquidation Value may be pursued. If the use of the multi-family appraisal is for estate settlement purposes, fair market value is sought, as of (effective date) the date of passing.
